the white house to start this super pac and began trying to help barack obama get reelected. and it started slow. the way to raise money is to go to donors. go to people who the donated before, to people who have shown an interest in trying to help the president. and it is a veryif you think ab, the power of his campaign in 2008, we know how much of that was fuelled by little donations, by people in this room sending $5 or $3 or whatever it is and the enthusiasm of small donors. you can do that as a super pac. you spend your time trying to raise six-figure or seven-figure checks. yes, i can find $250 for charity i am helping. but can have $1 million? that is a different thing. since then, priority usa has become very successful in raising money. more importantly, i think the priority has been an important part of setting the tone for the presidential campaign. the subject of this had a lot of influence. so we called up the ads -- .xcuse me for one sec i will show you and at the party put together. it will be the ad on the left -- not that one. as maggie said, if you just tol
before his next showdown with president obama. john roberts is live in florida, which i understand is north of orlando? >> it is just north of orlando. it spans two countries, seminole and orange county which split between obama and mccain in 2008. he spent this morning with rob portman his debate coach to do a little debate prep. they are expecting a much different president obama to show up a week from tuesday. one advisory the chicago obama to show up. in the meantime, he continues to carry on the momentum. she working the i-4 corridor where elections is won or lost in the state of florida. heights the differences between himself and zeroing in on taxes. >> for instance, he is going to raise taxes. vice president blurted out the truth. they plan on raising taxes trillion. they have already raised them a trillion. that is increases on taxes on small business, among other things. that will mean less jobs. >> reporter: on the campaign trail in ohio, president obama appeared to have a lot of fire that he seemed to be lacking on tuesday night. and accusing romney at shocking dishones
, a legal win for president obama's campaign and the democrats. it should be easier for voters to cast their ballots in the key battleground state. a federal appeals court affirmed a lower court's decision to block the state's early voting restrictions, which would have closed early voting in person to most on the friday before election day. the state could appeal the court's ruling, but ohio's secretary of state says his office is currently reviewing that decision. we'll be talking to his assistant secretary of state at 9:00 eastern time. >>> death threats, threatening phone calls and vicious e-mails all because they decline to be a campaign stop for mitt romney, that is a terrifying response this mexican restaurant in denver, colorado, is now getting. the cafe a has been a neighborhood joint for years and the owners who are from mexico are mormon. they say they just didn't want it be a campaign tool, but weren't expecting this kind of backlash. >> i couldn't sleep last night. we didn't want to exclude anybody, we just didn't want -- we didn't want to be a campaign stop and boycott ca
of us were waiting this week for mitt romney and barack obama to connect with reality, to connect with the lives we actually live. it didn't happen. the 90-minute debate went by, for example, without a word about immigration. not a thing said about the countless people trapped in our muddled policy. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists
strong month with 873,000 more employed americans last month than in july. president obama was back on the trail yesterday trying to temper his enthusiasm. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mr. romney, of course, saw it a little differently. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> good try but actually this month, the rate fell because americans were finding work, not because they were dropping out of the labor force. he was right about one thing. >> the american people have a choice. i think in both men we have individuals who cared very deeply about our country and care about the people of america. but we would lead america in very different ways. >> well, that choice was crystal clear on debate night. now, liberal pundits grumbled and groaned over the president' decidedly underwhelming performance behind the podium. let's be honest, i was one of

. the news could provide a boost to president barack obama. u.s. labor department officials say the u.s. jobless rate dropped to 7.8% in september. the figure is the lowest since obama took office in january 2009. employers added 114,000 nonfarm jobs, matching the expectations of analysts. the nonfarm sector is considered particularly sensitive to economic trends. 44,000 jobs were added in the health care sector. manufacturing employment edged down, shedding 16,000 jobs. >>> policymakers at japan's central bank unanimously decided to maintain current monetary policy. this comes after the rare attendance by the economic and fiscal policy minister. seiji maehara has been advocating aggressive monetary easing to get the economy out of deflation. after the two-day meeting through friday, the policymakers shared the view that personal spending remains steady as the jobs situation is improving. but they agreed that output and exports by manufacturers, one of the main drivers of the japanese economy, are relatively weak due to a slowdown in the chinese and other economies. they also concur t
the target of the anti-obama crowd, because i didn't call into question how the unemployment number got below 8%, i didn't suggest that number might have been rigged to look good for president obama. i was pillared as a house man owned by the democrats. please! look, my philosophy is crystal clear. you can't look through it. don't bother. you can't question its authenticity. you can't say it's political, and more importantly, can't question its legitimacy for one party without questioning it the other. i understand the accusations from partisan people. they feel robbed of one of the best talking points, unemployment rate stubbornly above 8%, to attack those who accept the number and don't offhandedly accept it is wrong is outrageous. i don't like how the number is put together. i would outsource the compilation number, and you can calculate data much faster and more efficiently. i look at the labor department the way i looked at replacement referees in the nfl. terrible, but nonpartisan, equal-opportunity mistake makers. the numbers i take at face value your honor obama and the same way i did
of the obama administration not to deal with the housing crisis as part of the financial collapse. >> very much so but you have to remember he inherited the problem. bush hadn't even talked about it. obama said let's do something. but then what they proposed was simply inadequate. >> rose: was it because they focused on the financial sector at the exclusion of the housing issue? >> basically, basically. part of it was they were worried at the time that the kinds of things you needed to do. restructure the mortgage, write down the mortgages, would weaken the banking system. and they were more focused on helping the bankers than homeowners. you know, ode citizens. and i think that was a big mistake. >> rose: when you look at 2008 and the decisions made first by the bush administration, paulson, bernanke, geithner and later decisions by the president, summers and geithner and others or bernanke, were the right decisions at the time to deal with the financial crisis to avoid going over into some abyss? >> they prevented us from going into the abyss, i think that's right. >> rose: so what they did w

. we'll have that coming up. let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> good morning everyone. welcome to news 4 today. i'm angie goff. >> i'm richard jordan. it is saturday, october 6th. time to get a check on ur forecast. >> that is why meteorologist chuck bell is standing by. surprised me out there. you're out in the elements. >> absolutely right. a beautiful morning to be outside. today short sleeve weather for sure. if you're going to spend any time outside today shorts and t-shirts is all you'll need though we won't be in the 80s like the last couple days. it is still going to be awfully nice to be in the great outdoors today. plenty of sunshine coming through the sky here
provide a boost to president barack obama. u.s. department officials say the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8% last month down 0.3 percentage points since august. the lowest since obama took office in 2009. they added 114,000 non-farm jobs. the non-farm sector is considered particularly sensitive to economic trends. 44,000 jobs were added in the health care sector. manufacturing employment edged down shedding 16,000 jobs. for analysis we spoke to gene maki. >> the unemployment rate has been falling. it's fallen from a peak of about 10% to about 7.8%. we think that decline will continue. so we believe that a year from now at the end of 2013, the unemployment rate will be at 7.1%. so moderate job growth is enough in the u.s. to push the unemployment rate down and that's what we've been seeing and continue to see. that's what we expect as we look ahead. we think if the fourth quarter job growth continues, reasonable 160,000 per month. and we do expect that to lead to further declines in the unemployment rate in coming months. the september employment rate will undoubtedly be seen as a pos
